If Opportunity Knocks

In between enjoying their daughter, Max, parents Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan engage in small talk, especially about Mark’s intention to build an artificially intelligent assistant to help run his home and assist him at work.

They have a chuckle that The Donald will stop illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border that he believes `Mexico will pay for. Wow.

They recall Trump gushing over some court decision that seems to go along with his anti-immigration stance, declaring it an unbelievable moment because the courts have not been voting in favor of his views…The Donald says that we are a country of laws, we need borders, we will have a wall. And again with a chuckle, The Donald wants to deport all immigrants currently in the country. The whole 11 million!

Another chuckle goes for Sen. Ted Cruz who thinks that if Republicans join Democrats as the party of amnesty, the United States would lose.

Priscilla hints that it will be The Donald sweating when he won’t find labor to erect his buildings, and to maintain them.

The chuckle on how the well to do would have fits being forced to mow their own lawns, and judiciously follow Honey-Do lists.

And suddenly Mark lights up, humming about an artificially intelligent butler. His imagination lights up: it will be kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man, like he used to see in the Marvel comic books and movies.

The couple discuss about starting the project by exploring existing technology. Then they will then begin teaching the technology to understand their voice so that it will learn to control everything in their home, such as music, lights and temperature.

They chuckle over the impending labor shortage, and think about teaching the assistant to let friends into their home by looking at their faces when they ring the doorbell`. The assistant will visualize data to support them at work.

Priscilla tunes in maybe The Donald will approve it, as it will reduce dependence on labor that comes from Mexico and other places.

Mark declares that it will be proscribed for The Donald and his ilk because they need to re-learn to mow their own lawns, and when he moves in, the White House lawns too!

Imagine, they chime in that a head of state is calling and his secretary says, please call later, the President is mowing the lawn.

One for sure, we will refuse to sell our Jarvis to the anti-immigration lot! Hey folks, enroll in lawn care and maintenance job schools, they chime.

Mark eyes continue lighting up at the thought of his M, the Jarvis, on a streak like his Facebook. They imagine downstream businesses like training the assistants for buyers.

Oh God, really, us thinking of endorsing The Donald to sell our M in an era of labor shortages!
